Hamari Atariya
Singers: Rekha Bharadwaj
Lyrics: Gulzar

A traditional North Indian styled song with sharp electric guitars as a guest arrives next accompanied by the earthly voice of Rekha Bharadwaj.  The biggest asset for this track is the electric guitar touches, harmonium and impactful folk style voice of the singer.

Jaagave Saari Raina
Singers: Rekha Bharadwaj
Lyrics: Gulzar

This track is set amidst peculiar rhythm suitable for the Kathak dance form and loosely based on Hindustani Raag Behag- the most favorite of Bollywood films. Rekha Bharadwaj single handedly takes the track forward with her amazing voice.  The tabla follows gracefully and takes the listener to the royal artistic lands of North India.  Vishal Bharadwaj makes sure that the track doesn’t sound too traditional at any point of the time with his involved orchestration.

Zabaan Jale Ha
Singers: Rahat Fateh Ali Khan
Lyrics: Gulzar

A beautiful guitar solo leads to a laid back prelude having the traces of Spanish and Modern Jazz in amazing blend. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan sings another masterpiece with velvety voice and superior control over it. The guitar solo in the interludes just gets better as the track progresses by !

Kya Hoga
Singers: Master Saleem
Lyrics: Gulzar

A traditional Sufi styled track with power packed voice of Master Saleem arrives now with masterful usage of harmonium, rhythm and brilliant blend of genres. Vishal Bharadwaj does it again with tremendous ease and gives a great end to an excellent to this album.

Horn Ok Please
Singers: Anushka Manchanda, Sukhwinder Singh, Yo Yo Honey Singh
Lyrics: Gulzar

A funky song with powerful voice of Honey Singh in punjabi style. The pace and rhythm goes well with the track and makes it a fun hearing. The song great vocal support with Sukhwinder Singh as well.

Verdict: A solid album from Vishal Bharadwaj that lives up brilliantly to its predecessor.
( 3.5 / 5.0 )
